Thokoza, which means CELEBRATION in Zulu, is conceived and directed by actress Thuli Dumakude, born in Lamontville, Durban in 1949. Thuli acted internationally in plays such as Rafiki, Poppie Nongena, and Bongi to name a few. She played KaMadonsela (Lady Macbeth) in Welcome Msomi’s Umabatha in South Africa and abroad, and featured as a soloist in the movies Cry Freedom, Power of One and Serengeti for Imax Theatre.
